Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups gluten free flour of your choice
  • 1 medium-sized, raw zucchini, grated
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup butter or Earth Balance Buttery Spread
  • 1/4 cup molasses (or brown sugar)
  • 2 Tbl ground flax seeds
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Optional ingredients

  • raisins
  • crushed pineappleĀ  you won't need the applesauce if you add pineapple
  • baby carrots cut the applesauce in half with this one
  • walnuts

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients EXCEPT gluten free flour until fully blended.

  2. Add the gluten free flour and blend only until wet. (If you over blend, the batter will become gummy.)

  3. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes. 

    You want the edges to be a little brown, but if you insert a fork, it shouldn't come out totally clean. Gluten Free goodies tend to get react differently than traditional. If you wait until the cake is so baked that the fork does come out clean, it'll be too dry once it cools.
